Zipline EXT Conveyor

The Zipline EXT Conveyor

US-based manufacturer Superior Industries has launched a new model of its Zipline Overland Conveyors. The new EXT Series expands the range of the modular conveyor product line for longer and wider material handling applications.

Superior Industries is a global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems. Zipline Conveyors target bulk producers looking for overland conveyors that require little or no pre-engineering for express deliveries and are designed for quick assembly in the field.

Today, with the addition of the new EXT Series, Zipline Conveyors are available in lengths up to 2,500 feet (762m) and belt widths up to 48 inches (1,220mm).

Between the head and tail are a series of 40-foot (12.2m) intermediate sections designed with 8-inch (200mm) channel and 2-foot (610mm) tall support stands.

Standard Zipline Conveyor models are equipped with mechanical take-ups for shorter distances, but the new EXT Series includes a gravity take-up tower to accommodate longer distance overland conveying.

All of the conveyor components, such as the pulleys, idlers and scrapers, are also manufactured in-house.
